Umm they are not French they are British bike testers for Fast Bike magazine and one of the riders is Shakey Byrne.Sorry if it's a repost... but well worth a second look none the less.
I think you should watch the video again, the guy in the shorts is the rder that went down at the end and at the time when he was wearing shorts he was not riding. I agree they are mad but fucking good at the same time.Oh, and test or no test, take it to the track for Christs sake. One of those guys was even wearing shorts. Geesus.
Just take it to the track. I am 36, have 2 kids,and another on the way. AND I have never been faster. Yes I was stoopider in my 20's but I am a hell of a lot faster now!!!!!!-- I'm also married and thinking about a first child... that'll slow you down quicker than anything.
